No "Windows Start" sound in Win7?

Just noticed that Win7 has no sound option for "Windows Start."

Is there a way to get this sound option back

Hello technomage,

If you mean for the Windows startup sound, then there is not a "Windows Start" option to change it's sound in Sounds.

You could use Option One in the tutorial below to turn on/off "Play Windows Startup sound".

Startup Sound - Enable or Disable

If you wanted to change the Windows startup sound, then you could use an option in the tutorial below.

Hope this helps,

Nope. Even when I login as Administrator there is no "Startup" sound option listed where I can set the WAV file. Just the check-box to enable it.

There is not an option to select a .wav file for the Windows Startup sound. You can only turn it on/off by default as per Option One below.

Startup Sound - Enable or Disable

You would need to manually change the Windows Startup sound instead as per the tutorial below that I previously posted.

If this is not what you meant, then please post a screenshot of what you see instead.
